On Wednesday night Surtain released his top-6 schools. Joining the Buckeyes were the Florida Gators, Florida State Seminoles, LSU Tigers, Clemson Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

If Surtain were to commit to Ohio State, he would join the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class (according to 247 Sports) and would be the highest rated commit in its 2018 class.
